As the name says the price of this laptop is a whopping one million dollar. The laptop is only one in this world and the buyer can customize it to his choice of precious metals, leathers and real woods. It is built in a design that allows for component upgrades. As for now it has 128 GB solid state drive, MP3 player, a built in USB stick and a “integrated screen cleaning feature” which is what only they know.
Tulip describes itself as the “world’s most desired luxury notebook” and we too think so. But at a price tag of $355,000 the desire will not be satisfied as for me. Its chrome handle and rounded curves make it resemble a women’s handbag. It also has changeable skins made of superior quality leathers with white gold plates and diamonds. The titanium hooks and sliding panels mask the unsightly ports and connections. The specs are not above standard though. It has a 12 inch antiglare display, 2GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, integrated webcam, Bluetooth 2.0, and DVD burner.
You may feel that these aren’t the manliest of gadgets but the authentic Bentley Leather, stitching and color schemes are really a stylish thing to own. It is available in colors to match your car body and when closed the laptop handle looks like door handle of the automobile. The lady who have an expensive taste can buy them at around $20,000 and that’s only for the looks. For performance you only have a 64 bit CPU for 64 bit Vista and a meagre 160 GB HDD.
If you want a real performing laptop with looks to match your style, you can opt for Voodoo PC which will give you high performance with its Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor, a chunky 4GB of RAM, twin Nvidia Quadro FX Go 2500M graphics chipset, 1.3MP webcam, dual 250GB hard disk, 7-in-1 memory card reader, dual layer DVD RW drive and a high resolution 17 inch 1920X1200 display. You can select a chassis from 24 color range and a tattoo selected from one of the 14 edgy designs to match it up to your personal style and for all these you have to sacrifice about $8500 from your credit card.
The fastest laptop in the world. It sports an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor, NVIDIA 9800M GPUs in SLI and staggering 8GB of RAM. It also has a Blu-Ray drive when you want to catch up with a high def movie. Anyone can be proud with this possession. The cost is nearly $5000 which is worth the performance.
Who said that laptops cannot be used for hardcore gaming? This sleek and stylish looking laptop uses Intel Extreme Core 2 technology and packs in the NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800M GT in a dual GPU SLI® configuration with up to 1GB of dedicated memory. It has 1TB storage in a high speed RAID 0 configuration and other storage options with smart bay. The system is loaded with Vista and you can record HD TV and movies with the use of its in built TV Tuner card. The product is worth the price of around $5000.
Other than having a normal 17 inch display, this laptop has a secondary pull out display which is located in a pull out section of the primary display and can be used in programs such as Excel and CAD for graphics and figures. The display is fully functional and can be used to display applications such as Skype or instant messenger. The piece is packed with 2.53 GHz Core 2 Quad Extreme QX9000, 4GB RAM, dual 250GB 5200rpm hardrives. It retails at around $4500.
This is an HD DVD capable laptop. With 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 240GB RAID 0 HDD and Nvidia GeForce Go 7600, it is a nice computer other than being a good HD DVD player with 17 inch 1920×1200 display. At a price of $3500 it will serve as a good entertainment laptop.
This Dell Notebook is a real powerhouse. It has Intel Core 2 Duo Quad Core Extreme Edition processor for ripping through complex analyses and boasts 16GB of fast 1066MHz DDR3 memory for large data sets and has graphics memory of 1GB. High performance laptop like this one also comes at a price which isn’t that much unaffordable. You’ll get the base model at around $3000.
The Acer Ferrari looks a bit of an Italian Supercar built with an ultralight, wear resistant carbon-fibre chasis. For the specs it has MAD Turion X2 Dual-Core CPU, 4GB of RAM and draft-n WiFi which will get you the performance of a racing Ferrari. he prices begin at a meager $3000 which is affordable for laptop with this much performance and looks.
The laptops which place themselves in the top of this list have some features that you won’t need to have. If you aren’t a gamer those high end video cards will be of no interest to you, if aren’t a frequent business traveler, laptop weight and mobility will not bother you. So, for average people like many of us won’t find it useful to spend money on purchasing these laptops. But then again, money has its own charm. Drag on.
